Six Thinking Hats - Edward De Bono - Google Books

by Ruth Edwards Kilgour. Robert M. McBride, Co, 1958.
Just when I thought that I knew all of the key books written about hats in English in the 20th Century, along comes this great find. Before and after WWII, Ruth Edwards Kilgour spent 22 years and traveled 160,000 miles at a cost of $100,000 (in those days!) to collect what may very well be the greatest collection of hats in the world. She writes well too. The book, organized by continent, is a travelogue as well as an expression of her great appreciation and fount of information about hats and headdress. More than 150 black and white photographs illustrate every hat described. My only criticism is the quality of the photographs, which judged by today's standards, falls short.
